Local Boards of Appeal & Equalization / Alternative Meetings 2014

March 20, 2014
Property owners will soon receive a “Notice of Valuation and Classification for Taxes Payable for 2015”.  This form is to notify you of the market value and classification of your property for assessment year 2014.  The property taxes that you pay in 2015 will be based on this classification.
 
Listed are the dates and times of the Local Board of Appeal and Equalization.  Also listed are three dates and times for Alternative Meetings for 2014.  If you believe that your valuation and classification are correct, it is not necessary to contact your assessor and/or attend any of the listed meetings.
 
If the property information is not correct, if you disagree with the values, or if you have questions about your notice, please contact your assessor first at (507) 332-6102 to discuss any questions or concerns.
 
Property owners may attend any of the three Open Book Meetings in Lonsdale, Northfield or Faribault to have a one on one discussion with the assessor.  Often your issues can be resolved at this level.  The assessor will advise you of your further appeal rights, if needed.
 
Read your notice carefully for all your appeal options.
